Flesh of my Flesh – An Interview With Writer/Director Edward Martin III

original

Hello Ghouls and Boils,

Those of you who know me personally and professionally have probably at one time or another been regaled with the stories of my time on the Flesh of my Flesh movie set. For those who are not aware, I was 2nd Assistant Director (amongst other things) of a feature film shot in Portland, Oregon somewhere around ten years ago. I loved my experience on that set. It sparked a fire in me and I owe a lot of my professional career to what I learned while making this movie. I made lifelong friends as well. The experience, even when painful, was magical. So my many thanks to everyone who brought me on board and let me spread my wings. I am very pleased with the way the film came out. We all worked very hard on it. This week we will be running a series to celebrate the DVD release! Today we have an interview with writer/director, Edward Martin III. We will have several more interesting talks with actors, crew, extras, and there will even be a little romantic undead tale! Minion Allison Troy (bio coming soon) will be reviewing the feature. I am sure I will not be able to stop myself from sharing a personal memory or two *wicked grin*, so stay tuned. Without further ado, I bring you me and Edward talking about Flesh of my Flesh — get your copy today!

Abstrusely,
Sarah L. Gerhardt

Yesterday’s Trivia

Day Ten

Q) Dick Miller played busboy turned sculptor and murderer Walter Paisley in Roger Corman’s film A Bucket of Blood. Name the later films where Miller reprised the role of Paisley, in order by release date.

A) Hollywood Boulevard, The Howling, Twilight Zone: The Movie, Chopping Mall, and Night of the Creeps. He also played an Officer Paisley in the TV movie Shake, Rattle and Rock!, but given its 1950s setting, this would have to be Walter’s father or uncle.

Publisher’s Comments:
As a deputy commissioner for the ICC, Alan Decker’s job is to make sure the settlements on LV178 follow all the rules, keeping the colonists safe. But the planet known as New Galveston holds secrets, lurking deep beneath the toxic sands dubbed the Sea of Sorrows.
The Weyland-Yutani Corporation has secrets of its own, as Decker discovers when he is forced to join a team of mercenaries sent to investigate an ancient excavation. Somewhere in that long-forgotten dig lies the thing the company wants most in the universe—a living Xenomorph.
Decker doesn’t understand why they need him, until his own past comes back to haunt him. Centuries ago, his ancestor fought the Aliens, launching a bloody vendetta that was never satisfied. That was when the creatures swore revenge on the Destroyer…Ellen Ripley.

Greetings to ill and sun-dried,

Today, I present Heather Royston’s review of James A. Moore’s novel Alien: Sea of Sorrows, set in the universe of the classic sci-fi film series. Enjoy!

Alien: The official novelization of the famous Alien movie with Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley!
A crew of spaceship Nostromo is suddenly woken up from a cryogenic sleep because of mysterious signals coming from an unknown planet and received by a ship computer. The astronauts land on the planet surface and go to investigate an alien spaceship where one of them is attacked by an alien which fasten itself on his face. When the crew returns to their ship and abandon the planet, nobody forefeels that the real horror will begin very soon…
Aliens: In the sequel to the 1979 film Alien, Ellen Ripley is forced to return to planet LV-426, where her crew encountered the hostile Alien creature. There they discovered hundreds of eggs, and just one slaughtered everyone but Ripley. This time she’s accompanied by a unit of Colonial Marines, but even their firepower may not be enough for them to survive and learn the fate of the colony known as Hadley’s Hope
Alien 3: Fury 161 is a wretched planet – a penal colony and industrial complex manned by violent prisoners. When an escape pod from the USS Sulaco crash-lands there, Ellen Ripley appears to be the only passenger left alive.
Then inmates begin to die, all at the hands of another survivor. A creature which encounters Ripley, and spares her life! Desperate to know why, she seeks out an answer – and discovers terror unlike any she’s ever known.
Science fiction master Alan Dean Foster returns to the Alien universe to reveal the ultimate destinies of Ellen Ripley and her eternal foe, the xenomorph known as the Alien.

Greetings to ill and sun-dried,

Today, I present Heather Royston’s review of Alan Dean Foster’s novelizations of the first three Alien films. Take it away, Heather!

(My confession for this article: as much as I love these movies, it has been awhile since I watched them and my memory is a bit fuzzy on some of the details. I did realize I never finished watching Alien 3, but more on that later. So please forgive me if I remember something wrong.)
